Library Updates

On January 20, 2020 the Dennis Public Library experienced water damage to its Circulation Desk and Back Office areas due to a leaking sprinkler pipe.

The Library will remain closed on Tuesday, January 21, 2020 to allow for clean up and repair of the affected areas. Additional closure time may be necessary to complete work. Stay tuned for further updates.

During this time period, the remaining four Dennis village libraries are fully operational and open to serve patrons.

Trunk Show and Needle Felted Art Workshop

Thursday, July 16 at 6:00 pm

Dennis Public Library welcomes Lyn Slade, one of the Northeast’s premier needle felting artist-authors. She will conduct a trunk show and workshop. Space is limited, so please call the library to register in advance: 508-760-6219. Registration closes on Saturday, July 11th so that the artist can prepare materials kits for each attendee. There is a $12/person materials fee.

During the trunk show, Lyn will present her needle felted artwork and explain how she got started with this medium and the journey she has taken, from pattern designer to author to using her art in a healing journey.

Our audience will have a chance to create needle felted artwork during the workshop. Needle felting requires the use of a very sharp barbed needle; therefore it is designed for teens and adults. Participants will learn the basics of needle felting while creating a 5” x 7” landscape. Each person should have the piece completed by the end of the workshop, and it will be suitable for framing or gifting. The $12 materials fee will cover everything needed for the workshop and everyone will go home with the foam work surface and the specialized needle to continue on an individual journey into needle felting.
